Lehigh University broke ground on the $145 million Health, Science & Technology Building in October of 2019 in Bethlehem, Pa. Designed by Wilson HGA, the 190,000-gsf interdisciplinary facility will provide flexible research and teaching spaces, active learning studios, classrooms, social spaces, community areas, and offices. Supporting a culture of transparency and accountability, the five-story structure will utilize interior glass walls to encourage interaction and put science on display. The building will include 36,000 sf of open lab and support space arranged in neighborhoods to enhance collaboration and innovation. The sustainably designed project will act as a new campus gateway and is slated for completion in 2021.
